Are Consoles Really Relevant For Gaming Anymore? Oh And Some Other Random Stuff About How Everything Sucks




I'm starting to get the feeling that I would like to have been born a long time ago. I don't mean this as a technophobe, like I hate the modern world or anything. Well, slightly I do and we'll get to that, although my only real fear for the future is that I am still terrified of ever showing my kids the internet. The first porn I ever watched was a double anal and that was just from typing porn into Alta Vista search engine (only cause they had a videos section and I didn't know how to use the internet to find videos myself). Whatever they type in within the next few decades is surely going to bring up horrors that I couldn't ever even begin to comprehend in my small double anal world. They'll be the quadruple anal generation. Generation XXX.

They're better than me, and for the first time future parents have to concede that maybe when they finally have to put on the gloves of authority, it won't matter because there is nothing you can teach your child. They'll have seen the shit. They'll know truths that you could never teach because to know what they know, would drive your mind into an inescapable and endless insanity. We're the last generation that needs guidance.

Assassin's Creed 3 "Haytham Kenway Pictures" (And a mild Cynics update)

Hello there, now, I'm not sure if this is appropriate, Cynics, as I know we don't really know each other, but I've grown to quite like you guys, and hopefully (as for some reason you keep returning) you kinda like us. So I feel obliged to tell you that I just broke up with my girlfriend, an oddly personal note, though she is the artist behind the Webcomics and Banners. Notice I didn't say "was", she said she wants to continue, though we will cross that bridge when we get there. Either way, that explains the inactivity this past week, it has been a long one. On a cheerier note. As I don't feel I can just put this and leave it, prepare for some humour with my "game of January 2013", Assassin's Creed 3. (Also, Sorry Django and Lincoln Review were delayed, I'm working on it)

The Assassin's Creed series takes place throughout different time periods in history, centering on a conflict between two shadowy organizations, that of the Assassin's and Templars. It is one of the few series that basically everyone (even non-gamers) can agree to liking, for its Cinematic direction, Story driven plot, Historical intrigue and easy, yet rewarding combat.

I've taken over 600 screenshots of this game, originally I planned to make a detailed weave of the story, but this is more like a "best of Haytham" the starting character, of my pictures. Here is my favourite character (Haytham, left) and a Captain who is taking him to the new world. Haytham is currently threatening to pimp slap him.
